On 4 June 2022, the National Adhering Organizations (NAOs) of IUPAC will make a critically important decision that will have a great impact on IUPAC’s role in the chemistry enterprise in the coming years. A new organizational structure has been proposed that is intended to position the Union favorably for its unique role in the rapidly evolving world of 21st century science. Deliberations by the IUPAC Bureau and Executive Committee, in collaboration with the NAOs, have led to a series of proposed changes to the IUPAC Statutes, Bylaws and Standing Orders. It is these substantive changes that the NAOs will decide upon in June next month. See more.
